Fatal fire in Round Lake Park, 3-14-19

Excerpts from the ChicagoTribune.com:

A Round Lake Park man who died in a fire last week was identified Tuesday as Gregory Gauvain by the Lake County Coroner who said that an autopsy showed Gauvain died from fire related injuries.

In a statement from the fire department … “Prior to arrival, reports were given that there was one victim outside and possibly one victim still inside the residence. One of the victims was a neighbor who suffered from smoke inhalation while trying to rescue an occupant. The male patient was transported in stable condition. The second victim was a female resident who suffered burn injuries and smoke inhalation but managed to escape. She was also transported in stable condition.”

Fire Chief John Christian said Friday that the victim was found in the kitchen and the fire was in the living room area.
